Do travertine floor tiles crack easily?

Reference Answer

Travertine just like natural stone have natural weak points. These points tend to crack easily when mishandled. The installation nature plus good care and maintenance will hinder the cracking nature of the travertine tile. Remember, if not installed on a good subfloor or even good adhesive coverage, it can crack when you place weight on it. The sub-floor deflection and flexes can also crack the travertine, they don't flex. Any movement of the sub-floor will also crack just like a hairline crack in a cement slab.
